The XMS flash range: outstanding performance and value
The Bowens XMS rangeis the definitive flash system targeting studio photographers. All XMS units are fully digital, ensuring total accuracy of flash power and colour temperatures. This means less time required for processing images and more time available for creating the perfect picture in camera.
The intuitive digital control panel makes precision control fast and simple and with 8-stops of flash power (adjustable in 1/10th-stop or 1-stop) that can be easily set from a single rotary control dial, the XMS offers photographers the possibility to shoot at high power settings or as low as 5Ws when wide apertures are required, allowing total creative freedom.
For unprecedented lighting control the XMS range is fully compatible with a dedicated 2.4GHz radio remote and trigger system, allowing the photographer to make all necessary adjustments from the camera’s position. All XMS units also feature multi-voltage operation (100-230V) for worldwide compatibility: they can be plugged into any mains system on the planet.
Unique design features include an easy-open and quick-lock adjustment latch to make repositioning and fine tuning the angle of your lights as simple as possible. A foldaway stand mount allows for easy-storage and transportation and an innovative and integrated reflector cap enables photographers to shoot straight out of the box.
The XMSR trigger: groundbreaking technology built-in
It’s all about control. The new XMSR radio remote control and trigger operates on the global 2.4GHz frequency (including 16 channels and 8 groups) and offers unprecedented control over all features and functions of the XMS flash range.
Designed as a transceiver, the XMSR can be used to fire flash heads, or wirelessly trigger your camera’s shutter. Simply attach an XMSR to your hotshoe and press the shutter release to trigger all connecting receiver devices. Full control over all main features and functions of the XMS is available at the touch of a button, including power, modelling, ready indications as well as creative features such as channel cycling.
The XMSR also includes ground-breaking ‘Sync Offset’ functionality, enabling photographers to embrace any brand of camera to shoot at high sync speeds up to 1/8000s.
